This was made from a block of big leaf maple for the June challenge at our turning guild. I understood the challenge to be in may and made a scoop (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/242658 ) for it but they said it is now June. So there were a number of blocks left that nobody took, so I thought I’d give it a bit of go again in another way. The wheel is all lathe work but the stand is not.
It has a brass inlay around the perimeter but I am not happy how it turned out. It seems one brand of the CA glue did not penetrate the brass powder as well as the CA I bought at Harbor Freight. This will not be in the competition, just to give another aspect what can be made from the block. I threaded the 5 holes used for the back side rings so I could cut away the whole center and still have it hold to the faceplate.
It is 3/8” thick and 3 1/2” diameter and finished with Watco Natural Danish Oil
